This year was as eventful as the last if not more. I finally managed to create a website! I intend to post updates on the year that has been. This year was great for work in the lab, but due to the time crunch, I did not share a lot of personal work or freelance work. Hopefully, I will be more regular in creating and sharing content in the next year. Sharing some of the stuff I made this year.
Zine on Gulmohar. Since I got exposed to the idea of zines, I wanted to make one. Having seen zines from other artists, I realized the potential and possibilities of exploration in this medium. In the first zine, I have put together, I go back to the idea of trees and the life associated with them in their vertical and horizontal, as a habitat and as apart of the habitat.
Limited copies, hand labeled, matte-finish paper available for INR 120. E-mail me to get yourself a copy.
Anaglyph of the cell. Since I picked the book Jim Curious by Matthias Picard this summer in a tiny bookshop, I wanted to make an anaglyph of my own. With the help of Google the omnipresent, I was able to convert my hand drawing into a joyful postcard.

This drawing also featured during Comic-Con Bangalore as an add-on to a science fiction book by my friends Ravi menses and Rahul Mohsin.
Available on photo paper with 3D-glasses and the description on a separate sheet for INR 80. E-mail me to get yourself a copy or more. Makes an excellent gift for children and childlike adults.
Notebooks with flowers. If one were to browse through my old notebooks, it is easy to stumble upon a flower or leave pressed inside it. I realized that plants and notebooks have a relationship. With a botanical twist, I painted and printed cross-sections of ovary and
A5 sized, blank notebook available for INR 250 (the set for INR 450). E-mail me to get yourself the set.
Calendar cum coloring book. After finishing two stock runs last year, I created some more copies early this year. A few copies remain in stock. The calendar can be used in a desktop version as well as a notebook version. A perpetual calendar where you choose the year and write in the dates. There are a lot of under-represented and unappreciated animals and bugs that need color of your imagination to bring them to life.
7” X 7” calendar printed on 100 GSM paper, good for watercolor as well as pencil colors, hardbound with spiral binding, available for INR 500. E-mail me to get yourself and yours a copy.
